I own a 2000 e320 and am wanting to get after market rims. I was wondering the optimal tire/wheel size and offset and width for 18". I also wanted to get feed back from people who are running 18"'s and see if there is increased road feel and a rough ride. I am wanting to maintain comfort. Thanks, Mark

The car tends to look better with the 18s. However, when you hit a pothole with lowprofile tires they will become out of round and make the care vibrate.
Get good tires and good rims.

Thanks Luke. I wanted to also get your opinion on running a 45 series with the 18's and what diameter would it work with?

Thanks again,

Mark

Luke,
On a 2000 e320 can you run 19" rims? If so what width of rim and sized tires would you run.

Thanks,

Mark

Luke,

A litte off topic but do the SSR GT3's offer a 18x10 for a CLK? Looking for the widest possible rears (rims/tires) that I could put on a CLK 430 without rolling fenders...From what I've seen, 265's seem to be that max tire width I could get away with but I'd really like to put the widest possible rim on the rear that sit's flush with the wheel well without using spacers...Thanks for help!

One month old and only 2000 miles on them

I had an E420 and AMG highly polished four sets. I paid lots of money for the sets with staggered looks. If your series you are looking let us, talk


highly Polished and billet aluminum wheels , and I'm attaching an image of the wheel. They are loaded with tires and they are stagger. This is the way it looks on my car. All wheels and tires are 30 days old. They are for MBZ E class and the size of each set are:

18.8" Front
18.8 Rear with all parts that you need for the wheels.
Front Optional 18" 235/40-18 Dunlop V - 149 MPH/W - 168 MPH/Y - 186 MPH/Z - 149+ MPH
Rear Optional 18" 265/35-18 Dunlop V - 149 MPH/W - 168 MPH/Y - 186 MPH/Z - 149+ MPH

Are there any 18" for a W210 E320 with the same size at the back and the front, which you would recommend? I want 18" rims, but I would also like to keep them both the same size in order to keep the ability to rotate the tires from back to front and vice versa.
